ENERGY STAR Qualified Refrigerator Overview
Refrigerators earning the ENERGY STAR must be at least 20%more energy efficient than the minimum federal standard.
A new qualified refrigerator can save about $130 on electricity bills over its lifetime compared to a new standard model
If everyone purchasing a refrigerator in 2010 chooses an ENERGY STAR qualified model over a non-qualified model, together we would save more than $100 million a year on our energy bills
ENERGY STAR qualified products use less energy and cost less to operate resulting in:Saving Energy = Saving Money
If everyone purchasing a refrigerator in 2010 chooses an ENERGY STAR qualified model, together we would reduce the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more than 120,000 cars
By using less energy, qualified refrigerators help prevent climate change by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions caused by burning fossil fuels at power plantsSaving Energy HelpsProtect the Environment
Save energy without sacrificing quality or performance
ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators offer high performance features such as:
High-efficiency compressors – use less energy, creating less heat when they are running, and are often quieter than regular compressors
Improved insulation – helps food stay cold and muffles refrigerator noise
More precise temperature and defrost mechanisms – help ensure food is kept at the optimum temperature
Available with automatic ice-makers through-the-door ice and water dispensers
Also available with top, bottom, and side-by-side freezers
